A small business, but one that’s still making a mark in the business world.
Pete Davidson, the founder of Pete Davidness Photography, has opened his own studio in Melbourne, and is just one of the hundreds of businesses across Australia that are offering a range of photography services to clients.
Mr Davidson’s business is one of dozens of photography companies, photography workshops and services that are operating in Australia.
“I was really excited when I heard that the ABC was going to be doing a series on the business of photography, which is a huge deal,” Mr Davidson said.
“I thought it would be a great way to have an idea of what’s going on in the photography business, and why people love to photograph.”
Mr Davidsson started his business in 1997, but has since established it into a multi-faceted business.
He said he had to learn to use a computer, and now the business has been around for almost 10 years.
“It’s become a bit of a business of art and craft,” he said.
The business was launched in Australia’s capital city, Melbourne, in 1999, and has since expanded to include locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The ABC has been using Mr Davidsson’s photographs for the show, and he said he loved being able to use the images for advertising.
“Photography is a medium where people are constantly getting into it,” he explained.
“If people don’t have the time to get in there and learn, they don’t understand what the world looks like.”
Mr Daveson said the pictures would also be used for the documentary, Pete’s Life.
While he said there were many different reasons why people wanted to photograph their pets, the photographer said they all wanted to know how the animals looked.
“We all love animals.
We’re just looking for a simple way to capture that,” he told the ABC.”
When you photograph someone’s pet, you don’t want to be the first to know what they look like.
The people who are taking the photographs are looking for the most intimate look possible.”
Mr Davidson said his business is “very much a lifestyle business”.
“We do a lot of weddings and family portraits and we work with people all over Australia.”
In many ways, the photography is a way to connect with people in that way.
“Mr Davenson, who has lived in Australia for more than 25 years, said the business was a way of supporting the animals.
Mr Davidsen said the company’s clients have been very supportive of the business, which includes children, teenagers and people who work with pets.”
They are very, very happy to work with us,” he added.
